  • Then We Came to the End

    No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts. Every office is a family of sorts, and the Chicago ad agency Joshua Ferris brilliantly depicts in his debut novel is family at its strangest and best. The characters in Then We Came to an End cope with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, secret romance, elaborate pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.

    Steve says: "Abridged Reading"
    "Terrible"
    Overall

    I have nothing good to say about this audiobook. The plot is plodding, uninteresting, as are the characters. The attempts at humor are amateurish.

    Mitch Rapp and his protege, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected and intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose. Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al-Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on America.

    F says: "Kickass Thriller - With Politics!"
    "Right-Wing Blather"
    Overall

    The story-telling isn't bad, but overt neo-con politics of the "good guys" is disturbing. If you're a Bush/Cheney fan, you'll like the simple-mindedness of this book.

  • Last Man Standing

    With vividly realized characters and a breathtaking pace, Last Man Standing is another spellbinding title from David Baldacci, best selling author of Wish You Well. When the FBI Hostage Rescue Team is ambushed, it is up to sole survivor Web London to find the killer.

    Chad says: "Great book"
    "Okay till the end"
    Overall

    This is a long book, perhaps longer than it needs to be. It holds together pretty well, until the end, when a series of contrived and convoluted plot twists prove to be disappointing.

    For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

    Timothy says: "One of the Best Stories I've Ever Heard"
    "Good story, but..."
    Overall

    the "good guy" characters are caricatures of the feeble-minded "good vs. evil" neocons that currently control things in Washington. They're tough, but they're dumb as rocks. I'd like to see more complex characters.

    Story

    Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

    Karen says: "Clever and interesting."
    "Not so good"
    Overall

    Some of the circumstances are not believable, and the writing is a bit amateurish. The author loves adverbs ("poutily"?), which, in dialogue tags, are lazy.
